Wedding Styled Shoot

Tropical Pink and Orange Wedding | Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club

Channeling the surrounding lush landscape of green oak boughs and verdant palms, along with a vibrant wall creating a colorful backdrop, this tropical Tampa wedding styled shoot embodied a warm color palette and bright flora that are often associated with the sunshine state.

Tucked away in New Tampa, Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club features multiple event spaces, including an outdoor verandah with a water fountain backdrop, a large window-filled ballroom with 11-foot tray ceilings, French doors and windows, and a certified Audubon Sanctuary golf course.

“Upon seeing the courtyard at Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club, the theme basically chose itself. After deciding on a tropical theme, I focused on making it extra lush to helped to accentuate the details of the courtyard,” Kelci Zicconi, Owner and Planner at Kelci Leigh Events shared. “In keeping with the lush, tropical theme of the shoot, I decided that pink, orange, green, and white epitomized the vibe that I was going for. I’ll admit that as soon as the theme was decided, I spent my days daydreaming, picturing the perfect tropical getaway: swaying palm trees, bright, music of the islands, and endless sunshine.”

The venue’s bright stucco walls, reminiscent of the setting sun, narrated the warm hues of the floral arrangements. Relying on shades of yellows, oranges, and pinks to transform the space and set the overall style, Florist Danielle Zechmann of Save the Date Florida created colorful arrangements filled with exotic tropical flowers and foliage that could be transferred from the ceremony to the reception as duel-purpose decor.

“We kept the tropical vibe consistent from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, and the reception. We started with a beautiful entry display that had acrylic columns and tall vibrant tropical arrangements; these arrangements were also duplicated as centerpieces that could be moved during cocktail hour. This is a great little tip we like to provide to our brides to help them with their budget!” Danielle advised. “A row of jade leaves and petals led to the archway that was covered with gorgeous tropical leaves and vibrant blooms.”

The bride donned a fit-and-flair gown with a dramatic fluted peplum train, along with a side-swept chignon adorned with fresh flowers to complement a bright pink lip color by the stylists of Michele Renee The Studio. Mary Anna Photography captured the colorful aspects of the day while Priceless Design Studio recorded the movement and sound through videography.

Danielle of Save the Date Florida encourages couples not to be afraid of incorporating a vibrant palette, as vivid colors make a statement in the feel of a space as well as in pictures.

“I am always a fan of color! I think it photographs so well and really brightens up a room. The pops of color and tropical blooms really brought life to the ceremony and ballroom locations,” the floral designer articulated. “We had cute little arrangements in the lounge area and cocktail tables that really tied in those colors. The reception room was full of candles and gave such a romantic feel while still keeping with the bright tropical vibe.”

The bright white columns of the exterior of the façade and the light-filled ballroom inspired the use of modern elements such as ghost chairs and clear glass charger plates from A Chair Affair. While additional elements reflected the tropical theme, including palm frond invitations by Sadgebrush Designs and live steel drummers from Breezin’ Entertainment during the reception. The overall style felt true to the Florida vibe that the vendor team set out to achieve.

“My favorite elements of this shoot were the steelpan drum player from Breezin’ Entertainment and the mermaid flair wedding dress from Truly Forever Bridal that the bride had on. I was also blown away by the floral elements designed by the team; it gave it a truly authentic feeling.”
